sgraffito

July 4, 2022

I’m drawn to art that has a childlike quality to it –– raw, playful and unrestrained. Anne Barrell paints her ceramics using the sgraffito (scratched) technique. Her work is crude and spontaneous, and I love it. Her rum cups are lovely, and while I don’t drink rum, I’d gladly fill one with pencils, hot tea or a velvety Merlot. Through simple line drawings and coloured glazes she is able to capture a mood; a schooner sailing through choppy, grey waters, Moorhens floating under a raging red sunset.
